Comments:
This cluster of Pitcher Plants was growing just a foot or so from the edge of the pond. As you can see in the photos, the open water of the foreground is the actual pond we were kayaking in. The bow of my kayak is visible in one photo. I did not know that Pitcher plants grew so close to ponds. I am wondering if some bog water is entering the pond along this shoreline?
